'll break down some of the electoral possibilities, which is narrowing for mitt romney and david shuster is in denver as well. the debate will start in about 57 minutes. i'm already buzzing. i love these things. >> jennifer: let's go! let's go! >> cenk: and we'll have analysis afterwards as well. vice president gore let me start with you. it looks like mitt romney is significantly down in the important swing states. does your strategy shift now and if so how? >> i think he has to be aggressive, without seeming to be aggressive and i think it's a tricky act for him to pull off. i think that his supporters realize that he is probably behind as the polls indicate and that he needs to really change some minds tonight. i think in some way there's more pressure on president obama simply because the polls indicate and most people expect that he will win the debate and that's a tough position to be in. but at the same time because governor romney has to do so much more -- he has to change the course of this race tonight, and that puts an enormous amount of pressure on him. so
. i think he let us all down. i hate to say it. look romney came to play. i think -- romney came to play and president obama stayed home. listen. i looked at it not just as an obama supporter but as somebody who loves debate and has made a living out of debating. and started out -- look, in -- i was on the debate team in high school. i the debate team -- in delaware. i was on the debate team at niagara university. when i went to college. i coached debate. my father judged high school in philadelphia. i debated on crossfire on the spin room, on msnbc. i've debated on the road with bob novack ay and bill crystal and mary madeline and you name them. armstrong williams. alan keys, i can't remember all of the conservatives i've been on the road with. so debate is sort of my thing. i'm sorry to say it, on points and on style, mitt romney won last debate. he came to play. obama did not. and it's not that -- i don't know what it w the president decided he wasn't going to get down and dirty but he just let mitt rom
went down. >> cenk: it went down. it didn't go up. >> the income, mr. romney, and don't talk to me like i'm your gardner. >> cenk: he should have done that. >> he should have, and listening to what your intro was, it wasn't about the $716 billion. people would have forgotten that. even if the president came back and said it's not $716 billion, you're prong and whatever he would have said. it'sit's the demeanor. the lack of fight. it wasn't the specifics. he seemed tired. you know, and romney was successful. i think the president was a little befuddled because he wasn't expecting to debate massachusetts-mitt. he was expecting to debate and preparing to debate the candidate who has been out there onhe stump. >>>>enen t tt's what weat ce lcadad da fda fouou u have to be prepared for everything. >> you do have to be prepared. i'm just guessing but that's what it seemed like. >> cenk: the other thing, it seemed like they didn't want to debate hard. they didn't want to go aggressive. watch here one of the top campaign strategists for president obama as he explains what happened after the deb
. we'll talk about that a little bit later, and talk about mitt romney trying to take down big bird, nobody was really in favor of that, i think. our phone number here is 866-55-press 866-557-7377 and, you know, we're talking about how barack obama is being treated. i have one more clip of john sununu that we didn't play in the last segment. not only did he call the president lazy and unattached but he also said the president needs to learn how to be an american. >> men and women all over america who have worked hard to build their businesses from the ground up is how our economy became the enemy of the world. it is the american way, and i wish this president would learn how to be an american. >> jamal: wow. so learn how to be an american. born in hawaii to a kansas mother. raised by his grandmother, his grandfather was a world war ii veteran, and educated in new york and massachusetts, needs to learn how to be an american, an american president. how about that. let's talk first to betty in california. what do you think? >> caller: i think he has been treated
. and that meant i had to reach across the aisle -- >> what would you do as president. >> romney: i'll sit down with leaders and continue -- as we did in my state, we met every month for -- monday for a couple of hours. there's common ground and the challenges america faces right now -- the reason i'm in this race is there are people that are really hurting in this country, and this deficit could crush the future generations. there are developments around the world that are of real concern and republicans and democrats both love america, but we need to have leadership in washington that will bring people together and get the job done, and could not careless if it is a republican or a democrat. i have dope it before and i'll do it again. >> mr. president. >> obama: governor romney will have a very busy first day, because he is also going to repeal obamacare. but my philosophy has been i will take ideas from anyone as long as they are advancing the opportunities for middle class families. that's how we signed three trade deals into law that are helping us to double our e
to move -- >> romney: i have to respond. my experience as a governor if i lay down a piece of legislation and say my way or the highway, i don't get it done. when ronald reagan ran for office he laid out the principles that he was going to foster, lower tax rates, broaden the base. you have said the same thing. those are my principles i'm going to work together with congress to say okay what are the various ways we could bring down deductions for instance. one way would be to have a single number, maybe can have deductions up of that amount and then that number disappears for higher-income people. one could follow simpson boles. there are all kinds of ways to achieve the objective i have. and with regards to health care you had remarkable de25i8s with regards to my preexisting condition plan. i do have a plan that deals with people with preexisting conditions, that's part of my health care plan. and what we did in massachusetts was a model state by state. the federal government taking over health care for the entire nation is not the course for america to have a strong
-- mitt romney must be worried about that. if jim lehrer decides to drill down on what by mitt romney's own characterization is an etch-a-sketch campaign, they could breed significant problems for him. >> it is not an easy job moderating debates under that format. interesting to see. they could talk about immigration because of the border agent shot today. there are a lot of different things that both candidates have to prepare for. >> eliot: one thing i would say is these are two unbelievably smart individuals. as you said, they both know the substantive areas they will be discussing. i think emotion will be more important than the substantive content. david, thank you. >> good luck. >> eliot: i'll see you. i might need you in my corner. that's "viewpoint" for tonight. in one hour, it is the war of the words. i'll be debating glenn beck here in denver. get the details on facebook facebook.com/current. i'll see you tomorrow night at 8:00 p.m. for our coverage of the presidential

[ laughter ] >> stephanie: that's congress women degette just said all of the women in the hall did not have a good reaction to romney's behavior. >> he was snide and smug but again he had a lot of time to practice for this. >> stephanie: yeah, and the president had to be president. romney -- i was like oh my god, the health care those are like the health ca
